The eighth event of Marble League 2017 was held on the 1st of August 2017. The event was the High Jump.
The High Jump returns with some differences to Marble League 2016. Instead of an elimination type event, each team gets a chance to do their best jump. One marble from each team rolls down a steep track onto a ramp and then attempts to jump over a bar. If they clear the jump they move onto a higher bar. Each marble is given three attempts to clear the height. If they can't clear the height after three attempts, they are out. The marble that clears the highest jump gets the most points.
